Kyle Busch held off a hungry field on a late-race restart to capture his third NASCAR Xfinity Series (NXS) victory in 2019 on Saturday afternoon at Texas Motor Speedway.
The Joe Gibbs Racing veteran took the lead on a green-flag restart with less than 10 laps to go, holding off Tyler Reddick and Toyota teammate Christopher Bell for his 95th career NXS victory, leading 33 laps on the way to victory lane in his Supra.
Fuel proved to be Busch’s friend on the final pit stop of the day, “Not taking any tires was certainly a help,” said Busch. “We jumped the field there and I was worried about the restart. I just didn’t think there was going to be enough grip. This car certainly had enough grip in it. I can’t thank iK9, the First Foundation – this Toyota Supra was awesome today. It was really fast.”
Very frustrating to lose one like that, but really proud of this team. This Rudd Supra was extremely fast and the class of the field.”
The NASCAR Xfinity Series heads to the Last Great Colosseum – Bristol Motor Speedway -- for the first of four ‘Dash-4-Cash' races on Saturday, April 6.
